Dr. Deborah Dunn MD, MPH
Dr. Deborah Dunn is an American physician of Russian/Swiss descent. Known as the founder of Genetic Eve, her Genetics Company, that focuses on the science of inherited maternal Mitochondrial mutations, and for her medical regenerative clinics that highlight the importance of optimizing Mitochondrial health for life/health span. She is also an author of 5 books, an avid angler, skier, downhill mountain biker, art and music lover.
She received a BA degree in Chemistry from the University of Colorado and began her scientific career as a Ph.D Candidate in neuro-pharmacology at the University of Colorado Health Science Center. She transitioned into the pharmaceutical industry, working in R&D, production, and quality control for companies such as Johnson and Johnson, Allergan, and others. Her years in big pharma left her with a true appreciation for the complexity of launching new drugs.
It was while Dr. Dunn was working in the pharmaceutical world that she began observing curious health effects experienced by production line employees that sparked an interest in the relationship between illness and environmental exposures. She returned to academics and received her M.D. from the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio. She completed her internship in Family Practice at the AHEC program in East Texas, her Masters from the Center of Applied Environmental Public Health department at Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, and her medical residency in Occupational and Environmental Medicine at the University of Texas Health Center in Tyler, TX -- a program particularly noted for its groundbreaking study and treatment of pulmonary disease and its affiliation with one of the few PESHU (Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Units) in the nation.
Dr. Dunn has worked as a physician for the petrochemical, airline, and electronic industries. She has spent many years as a consultant, both to regulatory agencies of the federal government and to the legal industry as a toxicology expert.
She was one of the early graduates of Andrew Weil’s Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona and a member of the first group of Physicians to be board certified in the specialty. It was during this time she became interested in modalities that explored the intersection of mind, body and spirit. She continued to expand her learning, completing the Institute of Functional Medicine’s education, Medical Hypnotherapy, A4M training, American and International Ozone training, Institute of Integrative Psychiatry Ketamine Certification, Peptide Certification, International Board of Undersea Medicine Certification for hyperbaric training, MDMA MAPS therapist training, Loving Kindness and Compassion Training, Shoemaker CIRS training, and private mentoring with expert physicians around the world on stem cells, peptides, hormones and more. She continues her therapeutic curiosity with planned training in hyperthermic immunotherapy.
She founded The Texas Center for Integrative Environmental Medicine in Austin, Texas, and The P-Treatment; a regenerative destination clinic in Vail, Colorado. Dr. Dunn is also the medical laboratory director of CLIA Certified Vail Mountain Lab; and provides consulting for clinical-based genetics corporations. She is licensed in Texas and Colorado.
Dr. Dunn's professional interests continue to remain centered on the role of environmental exposures on genetically susceptible individuals to accelerate aging. Her approach includes both traditional and novel methods woven together to create a personalized Protocols for each patient. She believes trauma resolution to be essential in returning the body to homeostasis and remains active in the psychedelic movement for enhancing neurodegeneration.
